- OnRadja NainggolanInternazionale
Inter sub: Nainggolan comes on for Vidal. Time is running out for the visitors!
- Yellow cardCasemiroReal Madrid
Yellow card! Casemiro is cautioned for a foul on Martinez.
What a miss! Benzema has the perfect opportunity to seal the game! He is left unmarked at the far post and has the simplest jobs of sticking it home, but he misses the connection and the ball bounces up and hits him on the arm! Free-kick to Inter!
Have Inter anything left? They've already showed mental strength to come from two goals behind, but now they have to rally again.
- GoalRodrygoReal Madrid
GOAL! Real Madrid 3 (Rodrygo) Inter 2 - Rodrygo scores what might just be the winner for Real! Zidane will be pleased with this, as the substitutes combine! Vinicius races down the left and picks out Rodrygo in the middle. His first touch sets him up for the shot and he smashes a beautiful strike into the top corner!
- OffToni KroosReal Madrid
- OnLuka ModricReal Madrid
What magic can Luka Modric provide? He comes on for Kroos. Could he prove to be Real's saviour?
- OffIvan PerišicInternazionale
- OnAlexis SánchezInternazionale
Double Inter sub: Roberto Gagliardini and Alexis Sanchez come on for Barella and Perisic.
Inter go close, again! With Madrid throwing caution to the wind in search of a winner, they're leaving themselves open at the back, and here come Inter on the break! Martinez releases Perisic on the left side of the penalty area and he flashes his low shot just wide of the far right post.
Inter chance! Real are clinging on for dear life here! Martinez finds space on the edge of the box and curls it agonisingly wide, it may have even kissed the outside of the post!
- Yellow cardNicolò BarellaInternazionale
Yellow card! Barella is cautioned.
The visitors have the momentum now and here they come on the attack again. Can they win it? Young delivers a cross but Mendy is there to deal with it at the near post for Madrid.
- GoalIvan PerišicInternazionale
GOAL! Real Madrid 2 Inter Milan 2 (Ivan Perisic): Inter are level! Real have let a two-goal lead slip! The home side's defence switches off as Brozovic lifts a ball over the top and Martinez reaches it, heading it into the path of Perisic. He uses his body to protect the ball and then slots it past Courtois!
Real chance! That's better! Vasquez can't get the ball out of his feet, so he toe-pokes a low shot at goal. It appears to be destined for the bottom left corner but it drifts agonisingly wide of Handanovic's post!
It has been a flat second half performance from Real and Zidane is desperate to add some impetus into his side.
- OffMarco AsensioReal Madrid
- OnRodrygoReal Madrid
Double Real sub: Rodrygo replaces Asensio, who has been anonymous in the second half, and Vinicius comes on for Hazard.
- Yellow cardFederico ValverdeReal Madrid
Yellow card! Valverde is late into the tackle on Barella and goes into the book.
Barella almost releases Hakimi on the right but there's just too much on the pass.
You sense that Real Madrid are happy to hold on to this 2-1 lead. There's a long way to go, so that is a risky strategy.
Ramos uses his strength to win the ball from Barella, who goes down hurt and requiring treatment. It was a fair enough challenge and there was no malice in it. He'll be fine.
The second half is yet to burst into life, really. Real had been playing an incredibly high defensive line at times in the first half but they're being more pragmatic now.
Casemiro gives away a cheap free-kick on the right flank for handling the ball. Brozovic delivers to the back post, but Courtois is always in control of the situation and plucks the ball out of the air.
- Yellow cardMarcelo BrozovicInternazionale
Yellow card! Brozovic kicks through the back of Hazard and deservedly goes into the book.
Brozovic's whipped delivery causes chaos in the Real penalty area. There's bodies everywhere and as Real try to scramble the danger clear the ball bursts! Ramos, I think made the block to deny Martinez's shot. Anyway, Real survive.
Yellow card! Mendy has his name taken for a foul on Hakimi, the Inter wideman screaming in pain after having his ankle stood on.
Benzema shuffles past two Inter defenders as he creates an angle for a shot but his powerful effort is charged down inside the visitors' penalty area, as Real start the second half on the front foot.
- 2nd Half
Kick-off! Inter get us underway in the second half, hoping to complete a comeback!
- End of 1st Half
Half-time: An absorbing first half comes to an end with Real Madrid leading Inter 2-1! More of the same after the restart, please!
- Yellow cardArturo VidalInternazionale
Yellow card! Vidal goes into the book for a poor challenge on Vazquez - he absolutely clatters into the Real full-back.
Kroos floats the free-kic to the back post where Benzema impedes D'Ambrosio and Inter have a free-kick inside their own half.
Casemiro is fouled by Vidal and Real Madrid have a free-kick in a threatening area.
An intriguing open game. Courtois is off his line quickly to beat Hakimi in a foot race and deny Inter a second.
You will never tire of watching Barella's assist, believe me. What a game this is turning out to be!
- GoalLautaro MartínezInternazionale
GOAL! Real Madrid 2 Inter Milan 1 (Lautaro Martinez): Inter are back in it! Martinez scores his first goal in six games to halve Real's advantage! And what an excellent goal! Barella flicks a beautiful pass into the feet of Martinez, who pokes a left-footed shot past Courtois into the bottom corner!
- GoalSergio RamosReal Madrid
GOAL! Real Madrid 2 (Sergio Ramos) Inter Milan 0 - And it's two! Ramos doubles Real's advantage! Kroos swings his corner in from the left and picks out Ramos, who makes a late run and heads Real into a comfortable lead!
Here goes Hazard, running at defenders and slaloming his way into the Inter box. He's going to score Real's second, isn't he? No Handanovic is off his line quickly and gets enough on the ball to take it out for a Real corner.
Benzema has now scored four goals in his last three appearances!
It's a real test for Inter, who have struggled for goals of late.
There had already been too many sloppy and misplaced passes in the match, but Hakimi's tops the lot. The Real Madrid graduate will be kicking himself all night after such a ridiculous mistake.
- GoalKarim BenzemaReal Madrid
GOAL! Real Madrid 1 (Karim Benzema) Inter Milan 0 - What is Hakimi doing? He plays a back pass from the right channel short and Benzema pounces, dinking it over Handanovic and slotting it into an empty net! A gift! Thank you very much says Benzema!
Real chance! A sight of goal for Valverde, but he spurns a great opportunity, volleying the ball into the ground and it loops up over the bar.
No penalty! Mendy appears to bundle Hakimi over as he burst way into the penalty area. The referee isn't interested in any Inter appeals, though. You've seen them given.
Inter opt to go direct, with Hakimi on the chase for a long ball over the top. There's a coming together with Mendy, who collides with his own goalkeeper Courtois, and Real have the free-kick.
Inter are taking all kind of risks as they play out from the back. But they do it and they do it well.
Neither side can keep the ball at the moment! It's all very scrappy. You can sense there's a distinct lack of confidence all over the pitch.
Side-netting! Courtois is at full stretch to guard his near post as Vidal lets fly from 25 yards. And boy that is close. Judging by his reaction, the Chilean thinks it's in. He's wrong. It's just past the left post.
Even in these strange times, this match feels surreal. You can hear a lorry reversing outside the ground! It's Real Madrid versus Inter Milan in the Champions League!
Shot! Inter are asking the questions of Madrid now. Perisic finds Martinez, who shoots low and hard, but Courtois keeps it out with his feet!
Inter chance! Hakimi has pace to burn and he drives into space, sending a low cross to Perisic on the right side of the penalty area. He composes himself and lifts the ball to the far post where Barella attacks it with a strong header. Courtois looks very awkward and he's relieved to see the effort rise just over the bar!
Just over! Real have started on the front foot and their high-press is causing all kind of problems for Inter. Valverde shoots from the edge of the box but his powerful right-footed effort drifts just over the top of Handanovic's bar.
Inter have sunk incredibly deep and are inviting pressure. Asensio switches it Vazquez on the overlap who rolls a low ball into the middle. Bastoni reacts quickest to clear Inter's lines.
Real chance! Hazard, making just his 25th appearance since joining from Chelsea, drives to the byline and combines with Kroos, getting it back and teasing it into the middle. Asensio shoots first time, forcing a smart save from Handanovic!
Perisic feeds Young down the left flank but Vazquez is too strong for the Englishman, using his shoulder to win the ball and shepherd it out of play.
- 1st Half
Kick-off! Real get us underway at Estadio Alfredo Di Stéfano!
There are just FIVE minutes until kick-off. It's Real Madrid versus Inter Milan in the Champions League, it's LIVE and it's NEXT!
Zidane: "We want to get the three points. Last year we didn’t win the Champions League, but we always want to. It’s on my mind and on that of the players, too. It’ll be tough and we will have to battle a lot. But we will fight to do it. "
The big worry for Inter is the absence of Lukaku, who had started the season in fine form. The Belgian is very difficult to replace, but to replace him with Martinez, who has not scored in his last five games for the club, is certainly not ideal. Just where are the goals going to come from?
It's quite something that Real Madrid have never failed to get out of the group stage of the Champions League. There is a long old way to go in this group, but a victory tonight is much-needed. And if it's not a must-win, it's certainly a must-not-lose.
Antonio Conte on Zidane: "We’re talking about an exceptional person, no need to talk about him as a player because we all know him. He worked so hard, he was always in the first row during trainings, despite the great talent he had. He is a great person, I can only talk well about him. He has always been loved by everyone.”
The last time these two greats faced off in the Champions League was in November 1998. Roberto Baggio scored twice in the final five minutes to give Inter a 3-1 victory.
This draw leaves Real bottom of Group B with just one point from their opening two matches...
If Inter are going to beat Real, they're going to have to do it without Romelu Lukaku, who misses out with a muscular strain. Lautaro Martinez is joined by Ivan Perisic in attack. Christian Eriksen is again left on the bench as Nicolo Barella is given the nod in midfield. Alexis Sanchez isn't fully fit and is also named amongst the substitutes.
Real are boosted by the inclusion of right-back Lucas Vazquez, who has recovered from a muscular problem. Toni Kroos is restored to the side having been benched for the 4-1 victory over Huesca. Eden Hazard marked his return to the fold with a goal on Sunday and he keeps his place in the starting XI.
